In this life-changing tale, Christy Award winner Angela Hunt delivers a bittersweet “wake-up call that should jolt many out of complacency” (Publishers Weekly).

Seventeen-year-old Emma suddenly finds her sordid life miraculously transformed by God’s redeeming grace. She soon marries a godly young man who eventually becomes a nationally recognized preacher with a television audience of 50 million. But after twenty-four years as an exemplary pastor’s wife, one call changes everything.

Listener Opinions

    " Excellent book. Very thought provoking....what it means to "be the church" and just not "be in church". Great, thought provoking Christian fiction. I guess I am actually glad that our new Golden Retriever ate the back cover of this library book. I picked it off the shelf on a whim, and now I get to own it!:) "

    " Good little read! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kristina | 2/17/2014

    " This is a Women of Faith author. I didn't particularly enjoy this book and would probably prefer a good Karen Kingsbury read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tiana | 2/16/2014

    " I really liked this book. Angela Hunt challenges you through fiction to look at how you're currently serving God and see if you're loving people the way God calls us to. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Marsha | 2/14/2014

    " TV minister's wife meets her son she placed for adoption at birth - he finds her and makes her rething ministry and what God has called her to do "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Evelyn Piechocki | 1/22/2014

    " Inspiring and convicting. A great Christian fiction book! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Leslie | 1/13/2014

    " I really enjoyed reading this book. It was very eye opening as to the fact that just attending church and doing things for people in the church does not make you a christian. I once went to a church that would look down on you if you did anything with anyone that did not attend that church. I did not feel that that was right at the time, and changed churches. The Bible says we are to be a light in the world and to let it shine. Light shines in the darkness not in a room that is already lit. It made me think of the way I need to be reaching out to others. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dianne Thornton | 6/6/2011

    " Wow. I read this in a day. THE DEBT will challenge your thinking about how you view ministry - what you think effective service really looks like. I know I'll be thinking about this book for a while. And praying that I'll see people as Jesus sees them. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Megan | 4/20/2011

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Aimeebrown | 4/14/2011

    " Wow. This book had many spiritual lessons for me. You MUST read this!!!! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Camie | 1/30/2011

    " This is by far one of the best Angela Hunt books. If you haven't read anything else by her, start with this one. It is not just a good story, but a good story that clearly illustrates God's heart for the lost and how we get caught in our church bubble and never find them. Read this book!!!!!!! "
